HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Let the campaigning begin in Alabama.

On Saturday, Kathy Warner-Stanton announced she wants to represent Alabama’s District 5 in Congress. This seat currently is held by Congressman Mo Brooks. He will not be in the seat next year as he is running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat being vacated by long-time Senator Richard Shelby.

During Saturday’s news conference, more than a dozen supporters showed up to cheer her on and participate in a meet and greet. Warner-Stanton is just one of two Democrats in the running for District 5, joining candidate Charlie Thompson.

According to Warner-Stanton, her message to voters is clear. She wants to restore the public’s faith in the government, highlighting the disparity between workers’ wages and corporations’ earnings. She also wants public school funding to be a bigger priority for lawmakers.

”We can’t continue to allow these people to continue to take funds away from education, but rather put funds into it because our children are our future,” said Warner-Stanton. “So we want to make sure that they have all the resources available to allow them to grow and be successful individuals.”
